years and, ironically, the whole fiasco actually added to the deficit. >> republicans basically had no choice but to retreat from their hard line position, negotiating with the american people. if the country defaulted, they would be responsible for a global economic collapse. the new plan for a three-month increase guarantees another debate in the next few months. okay, let's have it. it also shows republicans never had any intention on carrying out their threats. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think tonight. tonight's question, do republicans finally realize the consequences of holding the economy hostage? text a for yes. text b for no to 26239. debbie waserman schultz of florida, chairwoman of the dnc. good to have you with us tonight. >> thanks, ed. good to be here. >> is this a big victory of sorts or is this a trap as some democrats have labeled it? >> it's a little bit of both, because while it is good to hear that the republicans are recognizing that we cannot play chicken with our economy, that we cannot jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united st

s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> you know, it looks like republicans are up against another wall. but they're not going to be able to get -- they're not going to be able to get, quite frankly, some things they really want, if they're serious, are important. spending issues. but this is -- he's got them again. >> here's the problem with the republican party being owned by extremists on issues not related to the debt. let me tell you something, the president of the united states, it's laughable that he would talk about republicans not being res

make the choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its futur future. >> the commits we make with medicare and social security, these things do not sap our nation, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> wow, look at the crowd. this is a full bar the day after all the natural balls. i'm not sure what's going on here. that was president obama yesterday using his second natural address to preview his aggressive agenda with a focus on immigration reform, gay rights and climate control. organizers estimate as many as 1 million people filled the national mall. as the commander in chief exited the stage, he paused to savor the moment. the tradition of natural balls continued into the night. they attended 10 natural balls last night that went quite late and the first lady holding just two, the lowest since the eisenhower admi

that gets through, it will have to be deficits. nixon in china. who can reform entitlements but a democratic president? he is starting where he is. he is starting with the bases. he is not a progressive parading as a centrist. he is doubling down as a progressive. that is where he is. if he is going on move to the center, maybe that happens later. he won't pretend to be at the center from the start. >> part of the reason he doesn't have to do what they would have preferred him do, make the case about the economy is because he is a person who fixed the economy. it was the republican party unfortunately, their stewardship that led to the crash. he saved us from the great depression. i don't think he has to give a speech about how much he cares about the economy. he fixed it. he saved it. now he's saying we're going to keep doing that. let's make sure it includes everybody. that's liberty and justice for all. >> i'll get you a banner that says mission accomplished. you can hang that up there. >> i've got an old one. >> margaret hoover, alex, van jones, paul begala thank you very much. our live
